# Two chemistry inquiries [closed]

Here is my second question, I know 1000 grams of water is 1 liter. But does the density affect the result? What if the substance is mercury?

When you add seed crystal in to a supersaturated solution, the solute comes out. Does this make it saturated? Is what came out the extra solute that make it supersaturated? Or is it all the solute? This is my first question.

$1000 \, \text{g}$ of water occupy a volume of (approximately) $1 \, \text{L}$ because the density of water is (approximately) $1000 \, \text{g/L}$. If you had $1000 \, \text{g}$ of mercury, whose density is $13534 \, \text{g/L}$, it would occupy a volume of $0.0739 \, \text{L}$.
